I have the perfect area, three concrete walls, 80 inches wide and about 8 feet deep but don’t think the wife would want a built in grow area even though the growing is for her, not me. I already bought the dehumidifier and I do have a few small heaters to use when needed.

I’ve read on their web site to keep the light 24 inches above the plants so I’m doing just that my plants are 3 inches +/-
I'd go a but further if they are young.... like 30" you can always increase a little at a time.

If you post pics I'll tell you what the plants are telling you about the intensity and explain to you how to read them.

Nah they are fine.... feeding a light nutrient solution of around 150-200ppm? If not then I would start.

Yeah about 30" should be good for now.

In a small tent I blow air into the tent for positive pressure. Simply so the walls aren't drawn in and there's a bit more space for canopy.
